Very, very recently I opened up an Etsy shop to sell jewelry and plushies. My reason for doing such is simple: I had already made jewelry a few years back to sell at an Artist Alley, had lots of backstock left, and finally felt it was time to sell the rest off. This is my first time selling online, so I would not claim to be an expert on it, nor am I an expert on Etsy. However, the things I wish to talk about today do not require expert knowledge. Rather, they are just things that, while researching starting an Etsy shop, were not mentioned or were poorly explained.
